Lotus Sculpture, Goodwood Festival Of Speed 2012 / by Gerry Judah

Lotus Sculpture, Goodwood Festival Of Speed 2012 / by Gerry Judah

It is 2012 and every year a different car company sponsors a centrepiece sculpture for the Goodwood Festival of Speed. This is the sixteenth in a row that Gerry Judah has designed and produced, and this year it is bigger, more daring and beautiful, and more spectacular than ever before.

The sponsor this year is Lotus Cars. The sculpture itself is six historic Lotus Formula 1 cars driving on a winding road that has been tied into the shape of a half-hitch, or trefoil, knot. The road length is 150 metres, and the whole installation weighs 60 tonnes. There are six classic Formula 1 cars: the Lotus 32B (Jim Clark 1965), Lotus 49B (Graham Hill 1968), Lotus 72E (Emerson Fittipaldi 1973), Lotus 79 (Mario Andretti 1978), Lotus 99T (Ayrton Senna 1987) and the latest Lotus F1 Team challenger.

BOWTIE an installation for Harbourfront Centre in Toronto/ by rzlbd

In November 2011, rzlbd was asked to participate in an architectural exhibition titled BIG ENOUGH? The exhibition is arranged by Harbourfront Centre and intended to explore: What is big enough? How much space do we really need? And how can these needs be accommodated in a city where space is such a limited commodity? The installation had to investigate the idea of what is big enough.

THE NEST / BY JACEK JARNUSZKIEWICZ

The project that Jacek proposes responds, in a conceptual form, to EDC’s* mission. Designed to be integrated into the architectural context of 150 Slater in Ottawa, it is also related to his ARBORESCENT SCULPTURES, which build, in a formal and symbolic mode, on the notion of vital force embodied by plant growth and result in the representation of a fundamental archetype: the tree of life.

Two New Video-Projection Works / by Quartier des Spectacle Montreal

The Luminous Pathway in the Quartier des Spectacles has taken an important step forward with the illumination of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) design centre and the Grande Bibliothèque belonging to Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ). Using new, permanent video-projection devices that make it possible to illuminate entire building façades, these new lighting designs are a testament to the significant creative potential of this ambitious urban-branding project.

With the help of powerful software by Montreal-based developer VYV, the new devices will provide an all-seasons interface between Quartier des Spectacles visitors and the exciting programming presented in this vibrant concentration of cultural venues. By adding these tools to those already available to Luminous Pathway artists, there is now a vast array of new possibilities for collaboration with designers. They will be able to use high-end equipment to present digital works that will, after dark, create outdoor reflections of the exciting cultural activities going on indoors.

“URBAN FUTURE” at Design Miami 2011 / by BIG + AUDI

BIG + Kollision + Schmidhuber & Partner team up to bring BIG’s vision of future urban mobility to life for AUDI at Design Miami/ 2011, running from November 30th through December 4th adjacent to Art Basel Miami Beach. BIG originally presented the concept as an entry for the 2010 AUDI Urban Future Award introducing a future city paved with a digital surface that liberates the streets from existing boundaries and allows for a new flexibility of public use.

URBAN FUTURE AT DESIGN MIAMI 2011 / by BIG + AUDI

The 190 m2 three-dimensional LED installation provides a glimpse of the future city where the public space is shared between pedestrians and driverless cars. The entire surface would be infused with a continuous flow of information allowing for real-time interaction between vehicles and their environment. Mounted above the Design Miami installation, 3D cameras track the movement of passers-by processing the data into a generative artwork that feeds back into the LED panels.

Rapport – Experimental Spatial Structures / by J. MAYER H.

Rapport - Experimental Spatial Structures / by J. MAYER H.

The exhibition “RAPPORT. Experimental Spatial Structures” offers new insights into the interdisciplinary approach of the architectural office J. MAYER H. For the first time J. MAYER H. has developed a walk-in installation for the museum’s 10-metre high entrance area. Walls and floor are clad in carpeting on which data security patterns are printed in black and grey. The work’s space-consuming concept negates the strict geometry of the entrance hall. The considerably enlarged, repeating patterns produce a flickering impression and transform the white cube into a playful scenario of interpermeating forms and structures. Supplementary three-dimensional models translate the two-dimensional patterns into concrete forms.
